On the Question of Food In the Early Morning

the human animal
is driven by hunger:
hunger for power
for prestige
for riches
for love
for even the smallest
. . . amount of recognition.

today i am hungry
for food:
eggs-and-toast, a bagel, cereal
i don’t care what, i’m just
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .hungry.

and i’ve been hungry
like that before, you know?
propelled toward
any kind of love
any kind of slightest
. . . . . . . . . .acknowledgement.

but sometimes
you have to be picker than that
no matter how hungry
. . . . . . . . . . . . .you are.

after my shower
i get dressed into some
grey sweatpants & a white undershirt
then walk downstairs
. . . . .and toast a bagel.
